1 JACKSON STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE Introduction Physical therapy is a health profession whose primary purpose is the promotion of optimal health and function. This purpose is accomplished through the application of scientific principles to the processes of examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention to prevent or remediate impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities as related to movement and health. (American Physical Therapy Association, 1999) The physical therapist assistant (PTA) is a technically educated health care provider who assists the physical therapist in the provision of physical therapy. Although the ultimate responsibility for physical therapy services rests with the physical therapist (PT), the partnership between the PT and PTA is a key ingredient to success in the physical therapy environment. The PTA is a graduate of a physical therapist assistant associate degree program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE, 2000). PTAs may perform many aspects of patient care as delegated by the PT. The degree of delegation and supervision is dependent on the education and experience of the PTA. The interventions that PTAs may administer include, but are not limited to, balance and gait training, therapeutic exercise, hydrotherapy and other modalities, and patient education. See for more information on the PTA career. Program Length The Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Jackson State requires twenty-one (21) months to complete and entails five semesters of study including one summer term once a student is officially accepted into the program. Students begin the program's coursework in the fall semester following notification of program admission. The program s overall curriculum combines basic science, general education and technical courses on campus, and clinic education at various hospitals and healthcare facilities in the surrounding West Tennessee area. The majority of the clinical training occurs during the last semester of the program. Admission The Physical Therapist Assistant Program has specific admission requirements because of its limited annual enrollment. Students seeking admission to the PTA Program must submit an application for admission to Jackson State Community College and a separate application for admission to the program. The program application must be submitted by the June 1st deadline. Applications are considered for one application period only. Preference is given to Tennessee residents who are eligible for admission if applications exceed the number of available positions. Admission Criteria To be considered for admission, the following criteria must be met: 1. Obtain regular and current admission status to JSCC (for the fall semester). Applicants should contact the JSCC Admissions Office for the college's application procedures and requirements. All required remedial coursework must be completed in order for a student to be eligible to apply for the PTA Program. 2. Submit a completed PTA Program application by June 1 of the desired year of entry. The program s application is available in the Allied Health department at JSCC or at the PTA Program s web pages. 3.

Submit most recent official transcripts of high school and/or all college(s) to the JSCC Admissions Office by the application deadline.

Applicants should not assume that transcripts will be forwarded to the PTA Program from the Admissions or Records Office. 5. Submit documentation of a cumulative total of twenty-four (24) hours of observation in at least two physical therapy departments/settings and/or documentation of physical therapy technician experience (see the program s Observation Verification Form for specific information). NOTE: Students with physical therapy technician experience must also obtain at least 12 observation hours in ONE additional setting and submit verification of this on the program s form. The form for this documentation and further information about obtaining observation hours is available in the Allied Health department at JSCC and on the PTA Program s web pages. It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange these observation experiences. The completed observation form should be forwarded to the PTA Program by the attending clinician. It is recommended that the applicant obtain a copy to submit along with their application. 6. Personal interviews will be scheduled for those applicants who best meet or exceed the minimum requirements. The number of applicants interviewed will not exceed three times the number of available positions. Interviews will be scheduled by the program director and will be held on the JSCC Jackson campus during early to mid-june. 7. Students who are accepted into the program will be required to have updated documentation by a healthcare provider of physical examination and immunization records (a form for this will be provided by the program after the official notification of acceptance). Students will be required to submit to drug testing and criminal background checks for the clinical portion of the program per the clinical affiliates guidelines and stipulations. Inappropriate findings or results may compromise the student s clinical placement and/or program status.
